The Berger files

Former national security advisor Sandy Berger should appear in court tomorrow and plead guilty to swiping classified documents from the national archives, a misdemeanor.
He [Berger] said he was reviewing the materials to help determine which Clinton administration documents to provide to the independent commission investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
Berger and his lawyer, Lanny Breuer, have said Berger knowingly removed the handwritten notes by placing them in his jacket and pants and inadvertently took copies of actual classified documents in a leather portfolio. He returned most of the documents, but some still are missing.
The Clinton administration seemed to have problems with disappearing documents.
